I almost gave up
Do you ever feel like you just can't do it all? That is my feeling lately. I am just so overwhelmed with life. It's not just the weight loss thing, it's EVERYTHING! I can't get my kids to stop fighting, keep up with the laundry, feed my family enough fruit, vegetables and fiber, decorate my home with items I salvaged from the side of the road and then refinished, organize my pantry, read the book for book club, volunteer at my kids school, live within a budget, have family home evening, incorporate owls into my home decor, perfect the messy bun, keep up on my blog, keep the romance alive in my marriage, match all the socks, do the dishes, wash the walls, clean out the minivan, read with the kids, practice time tables with the kids! And those are just the things on my mind right now, give me minuter and I'm come up with a whole another list. I am so overwhelmed I just want to throw in the towel. But, notice the title of this post, see the important word, almost. I'm really not giving up. I'll keep plugging along. My home won't ever be fabulous, my kids will always fight, I'll always be a little pudgy around the middle. But on the flip side because I won't give up we will always have a roof over our head, my kids will know how much I love them and at hopefully I won't be this fat forever!
